The Gentleman From Alabama For HU Incontiitency.
In il house debate in Congress, April
9, Representative Hun. L. ft Dyer, of
St. Luuii, caused, quite a bested dis-
cussion when be asked for just [wo
minutes to toll about tho Negroes' loy-
alty to tbe United Suites.
True to himself and his constituency
■ Mr. Dyer v™N not stand to have, the
Negroes' loyalty questioned it is time
like this. After Mr. Dyer had asked
for time to speak on the question* the
Speaker of the House said:
The Speaker: The gentleman from
Missouri (Mr. Dyer) asks - unanimous
consent to proceed for two minutes. .Is
there objection 1 -
There waa no objection. ■
Mr. Dye*; The distinguished Speak-
er of this House, when he was accept-
ing a re-election for the fourth time
aa Speaker, mad* thi atatement tbe
other day that all people of tab coun-
try, of all nationalities and of all re-
ligions and of all color, war* loyal to
this Government. 1 do not believe, Mr.

A m trie an citinen,
■ In the preaa a few days ago we aaV
a statement to- the' effect that there
eras an etfort of the Imperial Ger-
nu Government to organize the Col-
ored race to light agajaat the United
States Government in certain aeetiona
of the Union, t desire to have tbe
Clerk read a statement coming from
one of the leading Colored men of the
South. Roscoe Conkling Simmons, of
Louisville, Ky., - upon the continued
faithfulness of that race to their coun-
try and Government. Nut that this
evidence is needed, Mr. Speaker, be-
cause we need but tend the history of
our country to see that this race— now
of ten million— haa ajwayi exhibited a
pure and genuine patriotism. In every
war this people has fooght for their
country. It was so in the Revolution;
it was so in the War of IBIS; -it was
•a in the Civil Wax, the. Spanish War,
and the Philippine* and Mexico. It
will bo so in thin war. Mr. Simmons
truly speaks the fact! in this statement
Twa Clerk .read as follows:
We have a record to defend, but
no treason, thank God, to' atone or ex-
plain. While in chains we fought to
free white men— from Lexington to
Carnal — and returned again ' to ear
chsiaa. No Negro has ever insulted-
• tag. No Negro ever struck" down
a President of those United States.
No Negro ever sold, a military map
„( scents to a foreign government-
No Negro ever ran under fire or lest
an opportunity to setve, to fight, ,to
bleed, and to die in the Republic's
cause. Aeeaae as of what you will—
justly and wrongly — no man ean point
to a single instance of our disloyalty.
We here but one country and one flag,
. the Sag that set us free. Its language
. is. our only toogue, and no hyphen
bridges (or qualifies but loyalty. To-
day the nation faces danger from a
foreign foe, treason ■ stalks and skulks
up and down our land, in dark coun-
cils intrigue U being hashed. X' am
a BepubUenn, but a Wilson Republiean-
Woodrow Wilson is my leader. What ha
commands me to do -I shall do. Where
he commands me to go I shall go. If
he calls me to the colon, 1 shall not
ask 'whether my colonel, is black oh*
white. , I shall be there to pick out
no color except the' white of the ene-
my's eye. Grievances I have against'
this people, against this government.
Injustice to me there ii. bad haw's there
are upon the statute hooka, but in this
hear of peril I ferget-r-nnd you munt
.- forget— all thought- of aelf, or race, or
creed, or politics, or color. That, boys,
is loyally. ! ■ .
Mr. Haddleatoa. Mr. Speaker, I ask
notes on the subject. of the loyalty
of the Negroes 1
The Speaker. The-
There waa no objection.
Sir, Huddleiton. Mr. Speaker, Ifaave
in my district over 1011,000 Negroes.
■Fast of them are voters, bnt 1 want
to say, Mr. Speaker, that* there never
was u more loyal MetJ of people thnn
the black race- (Applause.) And
those 100,000 Negroes In the ninth dis-
trict of Alabama will produce as large
n percentage of men- who arc willing
to flght for tlie Arncricau flag aa any
other 100,000 people in the whole
I was raised among Negroes, played
with (hem in my childhood, and Jhick
I know their. trait* .They hnve many
splendid qualities, and it is fitting that
some southerner should stand' up bore
and speak for them now when' tbe
coWnrdly finger of suspicion is pointed
at them. I know that. the; are loyal ;
I know thai they are brave; I know
that they, will make splendid soldiers,
and if the this should come when this
nation needs, soldiers, the faithful
blacks down, in the blnck district of the
South will -K'nu- to the -front like
heroes. " ' .
The cheapest activity ol patriotism
is in spy-bunting nxl ceiling in ques-
tion the loyalty af those of other races.
it. ■ i H an unworthy patriotism that .con-
fines itself to suspicion of other Amer-
icans because they may bave been born
in some foreign land or may belong
to somo other race. Mors thbn ever
is it unworthy when the object of its
.attack is the American Negro, who has
no other home than the United- State*
and never knew any other flag than
the Stan and Stripes.
I have recently regretted very much
to see -emanjating from one or" two
sources charges questioning the loyal'
ty of the Negro race. £ have regretted
to see this because At seems' to. me
that those charges and auapiciona are
in themselves disloyal in their, effect.
They have the tendency to breed duv
senaion. They have the tendency to
stir up strife among our people. They
are moat ungenerous when tbey point
the unjust finger of suspicion nt this
lowly and loyal race that sieve so
few spokesmen" and so few to stand up
for them. - . .
I want to ssy to you. gsnttetaen, that
the Negroes are absolutely loyal, and
they will fight, too. They will make
brave -soldiers, and you will find that,
when properly led,. they will do their,
duty aa American soldiers, they will
stand tire, at the front, and wilt brave-
ly suffer and die along with the bal-
ance *f_ us. (Applause.] --"

MEETING THE CHALLENGE
When the feeling became ripe that a hundred and fifty thou
sand dollars we're needed to erect and equip a Y. M. C. A. Building
for the colored men and boys of St Louis, a little more than a year
ago. the question was. how can this amount be raised? The Board
of Directors of the Central Branch agreed to give $75,000 and Mr,
Julius Bosenwald, a Jew of Chicago, who has done much for the
Nejrro rage, offered $25,000; and the challenge was put to the col-
ored people of St. Louis to raise $50,000 to complete the desired
amount. After the usual preliminaries, a Ten-day Campaign re-
sulted in over $69,000 in Subscriptions being secured by the colored
Them Came The Test . 4
There was much speculation on the part of many people of
both white and black Va to whether the $150,000 would be collect-
ed. There seemed to be no doubt about the $25,000 coming from
Mr. Rose nw aid; there seemed to be little double about the $75,000
promised by the Board of Directors of the Central Branch of the
Y. M. C. A.: but the $59,000 promised by the colored people was
the work of speculation and the center of real doubt. This condi-
tion brought the Ittal Challenge, the challenge of our manhood,
the challenge of our womanhood, the. challenge of our business- ob-
ligation, the challenge of our moral- obligation, and the challenge
of our right to be counted among men and women. This challenge
is being met bravely; this challenge is being met cheerfully,, and
this challenge is being met through sacrifice. Doubt was particu-
larly centered upon those who' made large pledges. Among them
were the $5,000 pledged by Mr. and Mrs. Malone, proprietors of
Poro College, and $1,000 each by Prof. Frank L. Williams, Princi-
pal Sumner High School; Dr. William L. Perry, Physician; Mr. W.
C. Gordon, a prosperous, undertaker; and one pledge of $500 hy
Crittenden- Clark, a Lawyer, Mr. and Mrs. Malone have paid their
pledge in full; and all the other pledges (except one) have been
mostly paid.' ThU it meeting the challenge. .
The $25,000, or the half-way mark, has been virtually met with
' the cash. The colored people of St Louis are to be congratulated
dn the splendid mark they have made. The ground for the new
building will be' broken soon. Let every one meet the challenge
in full by paying up their pledges. "

HOW THEY MUST FEEL
Up from every comer of' America comet the message that
American Negroes are willing to fight and to die for this country.
Great and powerful newspapers which a few -days ago told of Ne-
groes being "influenced by. foreign foes, are today giving front page
space in praise of the. past "history of trie despised black race and
are telling in no uncertain tones that the Negroes are one-hundred
per cent American when it comes to being loyal.
Patriotic meetings among Negroes are being held in.every city
of the land, giving the lie to the false impression that the Negro is a
But the, crowning tfreflt in the turn of sentiment came the-
other day in Congress, when Representative. Huddles ton of Ala-
bama in a stirring speech defended the loyalty of. the Negroes.
He said "These reports about the possibility of a Negro insurrec-
tion are almost .traitorous." "I have grown up with them. I play-
ed with them in childhood. They are loyal, brave, and if called to
the colors they will fight like men." "Some man in the South
ought to stand up and apeak for these people who have beed so un-
justly assailed." Representative Huddleaton's speech brought
l forth a spontaneous outburst of applause. * V
What must the "white portion of American citizenship'" think,
when it is brought face to face with the fact that the very people
who are despised, mistreated and denied their rights as men, are
the people after aj, whose devotion to the country and whose loy-
alty to the flag cannot be shaken. ■ -f . '
How they' must, feel, ,'it will take. the' Divine Maker to tell. It
certainly must be a mean feeling for a fellow to suddenly realize
that he baa been abusing and and vilifying his best friend.
SEARCH THE RECORD
If there still be any scoffers; if there still are those who would
dare question the right of the Negro to be clothed with/the full-
ness of American citizenship, we say to them "go search the rec-
On account of. a deep seated prejudice and a warped interpre-
tation of right, historians have used their pens Sn such a way as to
almost exclude any reference to this service of Negro soldiers in

Evil speaking baa been ■ reigning of-
fense In every lie. It waa for this
, amoDf other
causes that God
.give up the'
heathen" to a
. reprobale mind
were Ailed with
neaa — whisper-
er r s. backbiters;
ors of evil thlces.
Nor did Christi-
ly and thorough-
ly reform this
evil even among
Panl saying to
church at Corinth: "I fear lest
there be among yon debates, envying
backbiunga, whispe rings, awelllnss,
The evil speaking we have to guard
against la not ao much the flagrant lie
and the reviling speech, but the pri-
vate ways of calumny — the unground-
ed and false rumors, the unkind con-
structions, the ready acceptance of
bad reports, tbe carrying of tales and
the disposition to dwell upon the worst
rather than the best In people. As
someone bos said, (tils la what the flies
do — skip over what la sound in- men
and alight upon their sores.
There are some lives so blameless
th»\ even malice Is ashamed to vent
Its spite against- them, and yet there is
a way of accomplishing the evil pur-
pose even Id their case. Their, whole
character may not be attacked but as-
saults made upon -part* of St. The
edges win be nlbbteb at and the nor-
. ders of their good name clipped away.
Son) rone says that."so-and-ao la a very
accomplished person." and we reply
that "probably be knows It pretty
well! - This does not say' that he Is
proud or vain, but it comes so near to
JJ that there la no need to say it It
another la commended for hla good
■works we can add that "doubt less he
has- his. own particular ends In view."
Alt Are Exposed to It
> One would think It would deter as
from evil speaking of another to re-
flect how we ourselves are exposed to
the same danger: rttm Scripture says;
"Take heed If ye bite and devour one
another that ye be not consumed one
of another." It la'a game that two Can
play .at. The devil who Instigated your
slander against your neighbor can em-
ploy your neighbor to Instigate a simi-
lar slander against yon.
And then then is the other thought,
that when we search Into the corners
of our life and ransack tbe garret and
cellar, of our corrupt nature, many
things may be found for occasion
against as aa well as others. As Paul
tald to the Qalatlaos, "If a man be
overtaken In a fault, ye which are
spiritual 'restore such an One In the
spirit of meekness, considering thyself
lent ye also be tempted." In other
■cords shame for out sins ahould be a
covering for our brother's sins, and
recognition of our own wrnkntrss should
make us compassionate toward hla.
We ahall find that aa we ceaae being
evil listeners we lessen the temptation
to be evil speakers, Alt conversation
la kept op by exchange, and If. oue
brings you a story It will seem as In-
civility not to repay him with an-
other. Therefore If he accuses A
you wilt condemn B — and
thus It goes. The Scripture Bays
again, ,Thon shalt not receive . a
Keeping the Balance.
Of course there ts,n-prudent observa-
tion i >f . each other's conduct which
should be practiced by Christiana and
there may be a naeful Imputation in
each qther of what we have seen and
'known, not what we have heard or
guessed. For self-defense? for the sake
ef Justice, for the love of others, it
may be necessary to proclaim oar tes-
I]iji"oy. But thla la not speaking evil
of one another for' It is done '.vith an.
honest purpose and a harmless mind.

LESSON FOR APRIL 22
JE8U* ANOINTED AT BETHANY.
. Thifta a lesson of Jesus rn the
home. It occurred at tha beginning of
pastton week. We have before us the
muster; the worker, Martha; the wor-
shiper, alary; the witness, Laaarus;
the traitor. Judns. and the people with-
out An unconscious bit of wisdom
fell from the lips of that good house-
wife who exclaimed, "How mnch bet-
ter my nelgbbora' houses look when t
have. my windows clean," Too much
we are looking through tbe eyes of
selfishness. Oat of this lesson let us
learn to look through unaeitlah. eyes.
I. Unjust Criticism (w. 14). It la
six days before Jesus' last Psftsover.
The accounts of Matthew and Mark
suggest It to have been within two
days, because they mentioned thla
feast after telling of the conspiracy or
the chief priests and elders with Ju-
das, who came to bis determination to
sell bis Master after tbe reprimand
given him on this occasion.
(i) Tha Value of Good Deeds. Je-
sus did not forget in tbe supreme
hour of bis life, the friends whom he
loved. To bring them some further
spiritual gifts, he hud come to their
homo in Bethany. Doubtless be also
had In mind lh* desire to nourish the
faith which hud been kindled In tbe
hearts of all by the resurrection of
Lattrus, just us he returned to Cana
after hHvlng performed his first mir-
acle (John 4:04). Jesus was Very
God of Very God. yet he was very
much'of a real man; therefore he en-
joyed the pleasure* of home as much
aa other men. and the Joys of kinship
and brotherhood. J ' •
(Zi The Wealth of Bond Deeds. Oat
Of her love Mary expended IdC prob-
ably her whole treasure. In the pur-
chase of thla alabaster box. and put
It aside to use It upon him at the
proper time. . We, do. no( think that she
sfopped to calculate the cost of thla
ointment, I-ove never estimates vajna..
Her deed proved a safer guicle ofcon-
duct than the calculating prudence of
Judas and the' other disciples (see
Matt 20:8). ' Such deeds are always
looked upon ulrh suspicion. The Isea-
flots usually are the leaders in criti-
cizing tbe actions of others. Eavs lay
at the bottom of their criticism, but
good deeds are upcousclous, for we
read that "the noose waa filled with
13) A Standard of Good Deeds
(Mark 14:8); "She. did what she
could,"' and we have also the record
of good deeds, a memorial to her
(Mark 14:i». A large number of peo-
ple who never give of their own to tbe
poor nor to the kingdom of God are
willing to criticise others who do give
otrfof the gratitude of their loving
II. Gracloua Commendation (w.
7-11). Jesus praised where his disci-
ples) and Judas criticised. Tbe poor
